Mount Desert Land And Garden Preserve

Mount Desert Land And Garden Preserve

This foundation was established in 1971. The Preserve assumed ownership of the Asticou Azalea Garden in 1973 and the Asticou Terraces Trust in 2000. Guests are invited to enjoy the quiet and contemplative settings of these carefully maintained natural landscapes that have been treasured by residents and other visitors to the island over the past century.

We hope you enjoy our work.

Please support this 72-year tradition of trusted historical writing and the volunteers that sustain it with a donation to American Heritage.
